Detroit police seize 400 pot plants on east side

An investigation targeting major drug violators led to the seizure of some 400 marijuana plants on Detroit’s east side on Tuesday night, police said.

The seizure took place on the 20200 block of Van Dyke, just south of East Eight Mile, and the warrant was served about 8:30 p.m., said Michael Woody, director of media relations for the Detroit Police Department.

About 400 marijuana plants were seized from a Detroit home Tuesday night, police said.

How much usable marijuana was captured, and the street value of that pot, was not yet known, Woody said.

The home was raided after the major violators section of the narcotics squad developed information that illicit drug activity was taking place there. Though Michigan does have a medical marijuana law and Detroit does have many dispensaries, the pot grow that was raided was unlicensed, Woody said.
